Quotes of Scott Baio

1[defending Donald Trump's lewd comments about women in the leaked 2005 video] I like Trump because Trump is not a politician, he talks like a guy. And ladies out there, this is what guys talk about when you're not around. So if you're offended by it, grow up, ok? And, by the way, this is what you guys talk about over white wine when you have your brunches. So take it easy with the phony outrage, this is the way the world works. It's not a big thing.
2[2014, on Zapped!] Great movie. Loved it then, love it today. I get more people asking about that movie than anything, no lie. And I had a ball making that. A cute, fun teen movie, and it made money. And it had Scatman Crothers! He was a good guy, and supposedly he smoked pot every day. That's what I was told, but I don't actually know. But I got to work with Willie [Aames], and it was a great experience. I really enjoyed doing that movie. There were some great stories on that set. People were fun. We shot it all over L.A., which is always fun to do, and it was just great. What was most fun for me was all the effects. There was no CGI or anything, so all of the bottles flying around was a guy up above us, like a puppet master, moving stuff with wires. That's how the effects were done. We had to walk in and out of it. It was kind of cool. Dick Albain was his name. He had one finger missing from an explosion years before. As for other stories... I don't think I have anything crazy that happened. It was just a fun movie to do. Good people, good crew, good director.
3[2014, on The Boy Who Drank Too Much] Wow, really good movie. A serious movie. I think that was, like, the first really serious thing I'd done. That was the big time. That was Jerrold Freedman, who was a big director. And Mimi Leder, who became a big director, was the script supervisor on it. That was a good experience. I learned a lot, I worked hard, and it was a lot of work. We went to Madison, Wisconsin for a couple of weeks. There was a lot of rehearsal and really working into characters, which I'd never really done before. A little bit with Adrian Lyne, but not to this extent, because Foxes wasn't my movie. This was my movie, and it was a lot of character, a lot of business, and a lot of getting in and finding stuff. We had fun playing hockey with the state champions of Wisconsin, who were great guys. No funny stories, really. It was just a very good time and a very good experience for me.
4[2014, on Skatetown, U.S.A.] I have blocked that movie from my memory, it was so bad. I remember shooting it at the Hollywood Palladium. I remember taking a picture with Patrick Swayze. He was in it. A lot of people were in it. I think the idea was, "If a lot of people are in it, maybe people will go see it." That was that whole time where Xanadu and Roller Boogie and all that crap was coming out. That was one of those things where they sent me the script and I said "no," but they just kept calling and offering more money! I mean, they offered me a lot of money. And finally I said, "Well, hell. What is it? Two weeks' work? Whatever, okay, fine." And it was... You know, sometimes money isn't everything. It was just bad. I mean, it was bad shooting it. I'm trying to think of any real stories that I have, but it was just insanity. When was that? '79? It was just a guy making a film who didn't know how to make a film, and I don't even know what the story was! But Greg Bradford was in it, who I worked with later in Zapped! But Skatetown, U.S.A., that was crapola... I do have a great story about Skatetown. We were working nights, and we were on the Santa Monica pier. We were at the top of the pier-it must've been about 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning, so it was completely dead, except maybe for a couple of junkies walking around-and the camera dolly was on top of the hill. I was sitting there, talking to somebody, and out of the corner of my eye, I can see the camera dolly starting to move very slowly by itself. And I didn't really do anything, because it didn't register. All of a sudden, it starts going... and going. And nobody can get in the way of this thing, because this was a big dolly. It got all the way to the bottom of the pier, hit the railing, the camera came off the head, and went flying into the ocean. It was awesome.
5[2014, on Foxes] Okay, Bugsy Malone was with a real director, Alan Parker, but I didn't know what the hell I was doing. I was 13 and just sort of goofing off and doing what he told me. Foxes, though, that was a heavy-duty movie and a little ahead of its time. Working with Adrian Lyne... I'm sure Alan was the same way, but I didn't get it or didn't understand it, but Adrian was a director. He directed. He got mad, and he did all the things you think directors should be doing from having seen directors in movies. It felt like real movie-making. I was 19 and I was finally starting to understand what was going on. But it was a great movie to be on, great fun to make. We shot all over the San Fernando Valley, and it was just a damn good movie.
6[2014, on Cursed] I don't know what that was. I got sent a script called Cursed where it was a story about...well, whatever it was, I was the werewolf in the movie. I shot one scene. I think they shot a good chunk of the movie, shut it all down, and then rewrote it... and then I wasn't the werewolf. So they shot more of the movie, shut it all down again, and rewrote it again. At that point, I asked to be fired. I said, "Why am I in this movie anymore?" So I have not seen it, I don't know what the problem was or why they were doing all that. It was one of those cases where they took a $30 million movie, shot it three times for $90 million or whatever the budget was, and the movie made $4.00. That's one of those decisions where you're just left wondering, "Who knows where, when, or how this thing even happened?" I don't know any of those answers. That was one of those things where I was just a hired gun. I met Christina Ricci, who couldn't have been nicer, and that was it.
7[2014, on Charles in Charge] That was given to me the year Happy Days was ending, and I thought it was a very good script. We shot the pilot, and it was one of those nights in front of the audience where every single thing worked. Every joke. Everything. The audience just got it. And I remember that night pretty much knowing that that show was going to be picked up for a series by the network that was there. But the series was on CBS, and I think the writing was just too soft. Not to knock Michael Jacobs. I think he was trying to write something that should've been a little edgier... I hate that word: "edgier." But I played such a perfect human being that it was just insane. I should've screwed up a lot more. Which is what the second version did, when it was in first-run syndication... That was a good time. That was really my first time with my own show -- because Joanie Loves Chachi doesn't really count as being my own show, it was such a fiasco. People weren't all there, and, well, whatever. But with Charles in Charge, I was 23 or 24 years old, kind of knowing what the game was by then, starring in my own show, understanding the power that that entails in terms of work and the thing that it affords you outside of work and being able to understand all that. It was a great experience. I learned how to direct on that show. Al Burton was such a dear man, a good guy who taught me a lot. It was fun. Big fun. Giant fun.
8[2014, on making Detonator] What happened was, I got a call to do a Roger Corman film, so I thought it was going to be an actual film by Roger Corman. You know, something along the lines of, like, Little Shop Of Horrors or something like that. A cheesy horror film. But then I read it, and I was like, "Uh, well, okay, this isn't what I was expecting, but I guess they're gonna turn it into something." So I agreed to it, because I still thought it'd be cool to do a Roger Corman movie. Then I got to the set, and that's when I realized that they weren't trying to make a Roger Corman movie. The director was trying to make a serious movie! And I just went, "Oh, God... I'm stuck!" And that was it. Sometimes I should read stuff a little bit closer than I do. I don't like reading very much, and sometimes I get burned. But you know what? Nobody saw it. And even if they did see it, who cares anymore?
9I can work every day of the year. TV is easy. My call's at 8:30 a.m. I'd like to break out of the comedy thing and take a shot at something serious like theater. The off-season allows me to do movies, but I'm not tired of TV yet. There's nothing like it. I've got the best of both worlds.
10I don't have an iPod. I don't get the whole iPod thing. Who has time to listen to that much music? If I had one, it would probably have Sinatra, Beatles, some '70s music, some '80s music, and that's it.
11If I'm racist, don't think I would have directed shows like 'The Parkers' and 'The Wayans Brothers' or worked 41 episodes with Victoria Rowell on 'Diagnosis: Murder.'
12It's a werewolf movie with Christina Ricci, and it was a chance to work with some good people. But playing yourself is always fairly risky because you gotta watch how you goof on yourself.
13One thing I won't be doing on a weekend is shopping. I just don't like it, and I haven't bought an article of clothing for a very long time. I usually just take wardrobe from shows I'm on. It's much easier.
14My parents were married 53 years, good and bad. Can I do that? Probably not. But I really hope I can.
15Somebody asked me what do you regret. I said, well I was offered the role of Maverick in 'Top Gun' and I turned it down.
16Tom Bosley may have passed, but through that part and that character, a part of him will live on forever.
17When I was a baby, my mother tells me I never slept because I never wanted to miss anything.
18You can tell five minutes into it what a girl is after, when she starts asking how much money I make or tells me, 'I wanna be an actress.'
19I don't know, 53 years with the same human being? I can't be around myself for more than three or four hours before I want to kill everybody.
20I never did drugs and I can't really drink because I have zero tolerance for alcohol, so my vice became women. I was never faithful to most of them.
21I regret losing certain women, but it was always my fault.
22I've been very fortunate and I am grateful.
23If I lived alone, Mom'd never sleep because she wouldn't know I was okay.
24I love driving cars, looking at them, cleaning and washing and shining them. I clean 'em inside and outside. I'm very touchy about cars. I don't want anybody leaning on them or closing the door too hard, know what I mean?
25Family, work, familiarity. Listen, if I had a magic wand and I could make myself really be happy, I'd zap me onto a farm. And I know nothing about farming.
26Every day I think, 'Can I commit?' I think I can and that I will.
27I am not a spiritual guy, but all of a sudden I felt the need to really feel things.
28I cannot believe how much I love my kid. It's a beautiful thing.
29I very rarely came across rude or disrespectful people. I don't know how I slipped by all of them, but I honestly can't think of one experience off the top of my head that was like that. I'm sure they're there, but I'd have to think really hard to recall them.
30Life is too short no matter what party you are with.
31One of my favorite things to do is play golf at Braemar Country Club. It's quiet and not overly crowded. The people are nice, and there's wildlife all around the course. As far as my game itself, I can go from a 10 handicap to a 30, depending on the day.
32Don't ever take a shower with a woman, because you'll probably end up proposing to her.
33When I have a girlfriend, I feel caged in, I don't know why.
